Fans choice of Newcastle team v Cardiff this afternoon

3 years ago

We asked fans the question, which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Cardiff?

We put together a list of the 21 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

Rafa Benitez told us on Friday that Paul Dummett and Jonjo Shelvey are still ruled out.

Ki Sung-yueng and Yoshinori Muto are at the Asian Cup of course, whilst 19 year old Elias Sorensen is in Mexico with the Danish Under 21 squad.

The Newcastle boss indicated though that Lascelles, Hayden, Clark and Schar should all be ok after picking up knocks at Blackburn.

Whilst both Diame and Kenedy are back in training and Rafa said he would be checking up on them following Friday’s training, with the hope/expectation they will also be available.

Percentages rounded up or down to nearest whole number and this is how the fans choice could/would potentially look:

99% Salomon Rondon

98% Matt Ritchie

98% Martin Dubravka

94% DeAndre Yedlin

85% Sean Longstaff
